Rosemary Sokas's picture

Dr. Sokas brings a background of clinical practice in under-served communities and science and policy work in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health to participatory research and educational programs engaging workers, community members, practitioners and students in medicine, public health, nursing and community peer education. Her research focuses on occupational and environmental health among high risk, low-wage vulnerable populations. Her publications address the role primary care providers play in addressing the prevention needs of under-served working populations, and etiologic and intervention studies targeting hazards faced by construction workers, healthcare workers, immigrant day labor and home care workers, including the impact of contingent work and the need for supply chain and other policy interventions. Her interests include transdisciplinary collaboration and mixed-method approaches to addressing social justice concerns in the workplace and in the community.

I am a second-year resident at the Boston Combined Residency Program in pediatrics. I am originally from California, and did my first year of residency at Children's Hospital Oakland before transferred to Boston to be with my husband. However, we both plan to move back to the west in the next few years. Before medical school, I worked as a Spanish-English interpreter for about a year and a half. I also spent some time working at the US-Mexico border and taught ESL in immigrant communities in South Philadelphia when I was a medical student. I hope to develop a career in migrant health and would love to talk with some of your staff about their careers and work.
